The Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Redskins will match up to finish off their NFL preseasons on Thursday.
The Ravens are coming out of a 10-6 record overall in 2018, which bagged them an AFC North Division championship. Baltimore’s playoff run was stopped in the Wild Card Playoffs however, falling 23-17 to the Chargers.
So far this preseason, the Ravens are 3-0. Baltimore shut out the Jaguars 29-0 in the opener, then doubled up the Packers 26-13 in Week 2. This past week, the Ravens took out the Eagles 26-15.
Over on the Redskins’ side, they managed to go just 7-9 in 2018, which left them in third place in the NFC East and out of the playoffs for the third straight season despite a 6-3 start.
The Redskins are 1-2 this preseason so far. Washington fell 30-10 to the Browns and 23-13 to the Bengals in their first pair of games, but took out the Falcons 19-7 last week.
The Ravens are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 on grass and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. Baltimore is 3-1-1 ATS in their last five Thursday games and the under is 5-2 in their last seven road games.
Meanwhile, the Redskins are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Thursday games and the over is 7-1 in their last eight Thursday games. The under is 12-5 in the Redskins’ last 17 on grass and 5-1 in the last six meetings between these teams.
The Ravens are cruising along so far this preseason, and should hit the ground running once the regular season opens up. Baltimore seems to have a lot of solid depth and in all likelihood will play well here. I’m not sure the Redskins’ reserves can keep pace, so I’m going with the Ravens in this one.
